Tour - United Kingdom

RIAT, Flying Legends and air bases – July 2017


In addition to the bus trips that we have been organising for years already to the Royal International Air Tattoo at Fairford and the Flying Legends show at Duxford, we want to travel to the United Kingdom with a coach for a week in 2017 again. We want to organise a tour that includes the Flying Legends show at Duxford (Sunday 9 July) as well as RIAT at Fairford (Saturday 15 July). In the remaining days of the week we can then visit several air bases/locations. We have offered a comparable tour in 2015.

On the first day you can choose between visiting the air show at Duxford or spend a day near RAF Mildenhall. If you head for Mildenhall you will receive a 30 euro discount.

We have scheduled 2 days in the low flying areas and Valley. On Friday we want to go to the RAF museum at Cosford. What happens on which day will depend on the weather and the information that we have by the time we get there. There is some flexibility here.

There is an option to bring a step ladder. The use of this ladder at Fairford and Duxford is subject to regulation.
